Ice Climbing in the Depths of a Glacier

Dani Arnold navigates his way through the glacier's hidden labyrinths, in what turns out to be a mixture of ice climbing and caving. During his climb upwards, Arnold reflects on the rapid retreat of glaciers year by year. Glaciologists estimate that the Plaine-Morte will be completely gone by 2090.

What a great video! Genuinely fascinating and carried an important message without over egging it.

 Bonus marks for not asking for a hashtag for the trip either ;)

Agree - unusual and thought-provoking. I'm glad he admitted it was really scary 'cos, up until then, I was wondering if we were on different planets. Happily not so!

And the sense of sadness, of what we're losing through our own stupidity.

'Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot...'
